    This must be a joke recipe with a joke review. Its a good thing I'm a great cook, so I salvaged it somewhat. My BF said it was gross anyway. First off, the ingredients say to use baking POWDER and directions say baking SODA. I used baking powder, so as not to have a bitter flavor.. Marinate in soy sauce?? It gave my chicken a very dark appearance when it should look light and lemony. The "batter" was way too thin, just dripped off. The sauce itself was too sweet and I didn't even use ALL the sugar. I had to add more lemon juice to get a lemony flavor. . I don't know how this is called "Chinese Restaurant's recipe". Please tell me the name of the restaurant, so that I never go to it!!!!! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!!
